This was the result of two ingredients that, for me, usually mix in a strange combination, making me come out with all sorts of weirdness. The first was my ipod messing with my head (it was on shuffle) first playing "As The World Falls Down" and then playing all these sad I-miss-you songs. The second was that I just happened to be up at 1:15 AM, which I have discovered is the magical time of day? night? when I am in an emo-ish mood.
So, anyways. He's in chains and he doesn't know what to do. That's all.
